Laser Therapy for Knees
The knee is one of the most important joints in the body, and it is also one of the most prone to pain and injury. Depending on the severity of your knee problem, you may need anything from a simple hot/cold compress to laser therapy for treatment. In case you’re on track for the latter, here are some things you should know about laser therapy.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a type of treatment designed specifically to address pains that are commonly associated with the knee. Otherwise known as cold laser therapy, this treatment has been shown to not only ease the pain but also facilitate the repair of damaged tissue.
Various conditions can lead to knee damage, including arthritis, osteoporosis, and more. These, in turn, can cause a lot of pain and significantly impair your range of motion. Laser therapy soothes discomfort caused by these conditions by reducing inflammation and improving circulation.
What to Expect
When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will examine your musculoskeletal system to identify the source of your knee pain. When the root cause of your pain has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs. This often includes laser therapy.
During laser therapy, the laser makes its way down to deep tissue, where it works to relieve pain and inflammation. The handheld device can easily be moved to target specific areas for treatment. Laser therapy can facilitate the restoration of damaged cells from deep within the skin, promoting healthy tissue growth.
The device will be used on your knee for 30 seconds to a minute. Because of the short amount of time needed for each session, may need several sessions in the future to experience optimal results..
